About: (Est. 1876) Johns Hopkins University (informally Johns Hopkins, JHU, or just Hopkins) is a not-for-profit private research university based in Baltimore, Maryland. The university was founded on January 22, 1876, and named for its benefactor, the philanthropist Johns Hopkins. Johns Hopkins maintains campuses in Maryland; Washington, D.C.; Italy; China and Singapore. Johns Hopkins pioneered the concept of the modern research university in the United States and has ranked among the world’s top of such universities throughout its history. As of 2011, thirty-seven Nobel Prize winners have been affiliated with Johns Hopkins, and the university’s research is among the most cited in the world. (Source: Wikipedia).

Ed.’s Notes: Could be worse, I guess. The elements in the shield all seem to come three different logos (or clip art libraries). A few applications below (or after the jump).
Relevant links: Announcement.
Select quote: “The final design for the main university logo is based on existing iconography and is rooted in the official academic seal. The book represents knowledge and discovery, the globe symbolizes the university’s worldwide reach, and the crest of Lord Baltimore indicates the university’s connection to its community. Some schools and divisions, like the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Applied Physics Laboratory, feature their own unique graphics, enclosed within a shield shape that is common to all the logos.”
